That big old storm that everyone was talking about stayed south of us..we just got the cold. It was only supposed to be –16 F last night. Our thermometer said –13F or –25C. It has to warm up some to snow..that is the rule.
This was the snow stick yesterday morning..December 11, 2010. Pretty much the same as last time..even though it snowed a little one day..the snow packs down.
There are a few critters out.
Far Guy and I thought this was a Coyote..but the more we look at it we think it is a Wolf. Uncle Archie says there is a wolf that has been near his place that goes up along a trail not far from us to two deer kills. He also said that a mother wolf was seen with four pups last summer just about a mile from us near the river. I tried to get closer ..when we turned around and stopped he lumbered off into a planting of trees.
One day we saw eleven turkeys strolling toward the cover of the oaks.
Kinda puts you in the mood for that holiday classic eleven turkeys strolling, la la la lots of times and one wolf in a field. What you have never heard of that one? HA!
I covered that old twig wreath that I have hanging next to the door with red lights..ain’t it purty? That is the big decoration for the day.
Now pay attention..tell me what color Christmas lights you use at your house..those people who answer with a color will be entered in the great Hand Carved Ornament Giveaway. I like red and that is what I picked for this outside wreath..obviously. Far Guy likes blue..so that is what we use on our downstairs tree:)
